The International Political Economy (IPE) major at University of Puget Sound prepares students for an increasingly interdependent world through the study of global issues. 


Students take courses in IPE, as well as in economics, political science, sociology and anthropology, so they can understand the world from different (and sometimes competing) perspectives. 

The International Political Economy major from University of Puget Sound culminates in a senior thesis in which students demonstrate the depth and breadth of the liberal arts education to tackle a complex question. 

Many IPE alumni work in careers related to the interests they developed as IPE students.
